My company is getting a Mac Pro and money is no hindrance. (Unless you into the 20,000 and up area) Is it better to get one with 4x 256meg video cards or the 1 512 meg card? I need to hook up dual displays and a color timing monitor.

I'm also looking at the MXO2 Max. And a panasonic or flanders scientific monitor.


I was looking at this turnkey system..

But the stats aren't maxed out. I'd like the most VRAM (if that's what I need) and RAM as possible (32gb)


Anyway what's the best configuration possible?

The one suits your needs best. That is impossible for anyone else to answer for you. A lot of reading and poking around on the internet will help. Try editing and post production forums, that is where you will have best luck.
